Starting Over: Michael Vick Style

In Uncategorized on July 20, 2009 at 9:18 am

Today, Michael Vick has been released from federal custody his attorney said. Now, Vick begins the rest of his life perhaps a changed man. The details of Vick’s involvement with a dogfighting ring have been well documented, and where Vick goes from here is yet to be determined. But what has yet to be completed is the book documenting the rest of his life. There are times we all want to reset the dial to zero, and when we start over we hopefully keep the wisdom of knowing how certain decisions can impact us and others for the rest of our lives. Vick, as the football player, his future is cloudy, but Vick, the man, has an opportunity that many perhaps take for granted. Perhaps as humans two of the most difficult things to say are “I’m sorry” and “I forgive you.” As NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell explained “Michael did an egregious thing. He has paid a very significant price for that.” But as explained in an ESPN article, Vick too must show that he is indeed remorseful for those actions. Starting over as Michael Vick won’t be easy-but starting over allows him to continue writing a legacy that is still yet forming.
